Tuyo or dried herring is considered by many as “poor man's food” because of its cheap price and distinct salty taste. Over the years, however, it has turned into a gourmet delicacy, with the dried herring soaked in olive oil and spices and placed in bottles.

The tawilis (Sardinella tawilis) is a freshwater sardine found exclusively in the Philippines. It is unique in that it is the only member of the genus Sardinella is known to exist entirely in freshwater. It is a small fish, reaching up to 15 cm long and weighing less than 30 g each.

These small fish are packed with nutrients that can be beneficial in the prevention of a number of health conditions. Some of these nutrients are known to help prevent heart disease or may protect against certain cancers.

Sardines are sometimes recommended for pregnant women and older adults. They contain calcium and other vital nutrients.

Omega-3 fatty acids

Omega-3 fatty acids help prevent heart disease due to their anti-inflammatory properties. Sardines are an excellent source of them.

Omega-3 fatty acids also reduce the risk of blood clots and lower blood pressure. And they may help protect those who’ve had a heart attack in the past.

Vitamins

Sardines are an excellent source of vitamin B-12. This vitamin helps your cardiovascular system and gives you energy.

In addition, these fish contain a healthy amount of vitamin D. Along with B-12, D is necessary for good bone health throughout your life.

Calcium

Sardines are an excellent source of calcium. That makes them a good choice for those who are lactose intolerant, allergic to dairy, or need more calcium in their diet.

This can also be helpful during pregnancy if you need alternative forms of calcium for the health of your baby.

Minerals

Along with calcium and lots of vitamins, sardines contain a number of beneficial minerals. These include:

  • niacin
  • iron
  • potassium
  • magnesium
  • zinc
  • phosphorus

Protein

Sardines also have protein, which is essential for you to build healthy bones and muscles. Protein also helps create antibodies that keep our immune systems strong. As well, it takes nutrients and oxygen to all the parts of the body.
